These muskrats were captured last fall in the marsh at FortWhyte Alive, our Nature Center, on the southwest edge of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada….Note: Better seen enlarged.

Muskrats are covered with short, thick fur which is medium to dark brown in color with the belly a bit lighter. The fur has two layers, which helps protect them from the cold water. They have long tails which are covered with scales rather than hair and are flattened vertically to aid them in swimming. When they walk on land the tail drags on the ground, which makes their tracks easy to recognize. Muskrats spend much of their time in the water and are well suited for their semi-aquatic life, both in and out of water.

Muskrats can swim under water for up to 15 minutes. Their bodies, like those of seals and whales, are less sensitive to the build up of carbon dioxide than those of most other mammals. They can close off their ears to keep the water out. Their hind feet are semi-webbed, although in swimming the tail is their main means of propulsion.
